The project examines how the human’s inherent ability to draw in space can be used to connect stick elements in a hanging structure. The highly redudant and intricate structure leverages the human’s ability to navigate between tight and heterogeneous spaces where each person can easily adapt to unanticipated circumstances. However, such a process incurs an accumulation of minor imprecisions which unless iterratively corrected can result in large amounts of deviation from the original overall target geometry. Therefore, a feedback system allows each layer to be progressively scanned and updated throughout the fabrication process.
